The ongoing discussions about the Homeric Question and about orality and literacy in the language arts resonate to such a degree with parallel questions as regards the history of music. These discussions are considered by way of a review of two recent books about the subject: The Theory of Oral Composition: History and Methodology by John Miles Foley and Oral-Formulaic Theory: A Folklore Casebook, edited by John Miles Foley.

Keywords:   Homeric epics, The Theory of Oral Composition: History and Methodology, John Miles Foley, Oral-Formulaic Theory: A Folklore Casebook, music
